Downtown Clifton Hotel

The Downtown Clifton Hotel – Tucson AZ

A Unique Hotel In Downtown Tucson

Downtown Clifton hotelThe Downtown Clifton Hotel offers stylish accommodations in historic Armory Park. It is in the historic Armory Park community on the edge of Barrio Viejo.

It is a unique place to stay in Tucson, Arizona. The Downtown Clifton hotel is a part of the heart and soul of downtown Tucson and yet a world apart.

Built in 1948 along US route 80 that linked Douglas to the south and Phoenix to the north. And by the way, US Route 80 is now Stone Avenue in Tucson.

In 2014, the hotel changed ownership. The new owners restored the facility into The Downtown Clifton Hotel.

In 2019, the Downtown Clifton added 22-rooms. It is a stylish Sonoran Modern expansion that speaks to the original vintage feel of the hotel. The modern rooms have wood beam ceilings, brick walls and concrete floors.

Red Light Lounge

With the restoration came a new bar and restaurant – The Red Light Lounge.

The Lounge bills itself as “a neighborhood bar tucked inside a neighborhood hotel.” It a perfect place to kick back with a drink in the early Tucson evening.

If you are out and about, its a great place for a nightcap when it turns from hotel patio to local hangout.

At the bar you find local and regional beer, wine, classic and craft cocktails. The menu at the restaurant features contemporary Tucson cuisine.

The Bunkhouse

The original hotel rooms are now the “Bunkhouse”.

The rooms would ;make any cowboy think they had died and gone to heaven. They are the swankest bunkhouse this end of a trail ride.

Each room features mid-century hip with all the modern amenities. An eclectic western vibe stands out with craftsmanship and curated art.

Rooms feature king beds on wooden platforms handmade in Tucson. They complement the original wood beam ceilings. Saddle blanket bedspreads serve as a cheeky contrast to polished concrete floors. Bathrooms display original 1940s tile work.

Each room has a desk and a 42 inch high-def flat screen smart TV that streams Netflix or Hulu Plus as well as live tv.

La señorita

The 22 room addition is know as the La Señorita rooms. They accompaniment the original bunkhouse rooms and feature upstairs and downstairs rooms.

Ten upstairs rooms have floor to ceiling windows. They provide views of the historic barrios surrounding the hotel. Two rooms –
#29 and #30 – feature spectacular views of A Mountain to the west.

All 22 rooms have queen beds on graceful, hand painted platform bed frames. These rooms offer spacious sitting areas where you can read a book or relax with a drink from our Red Light Lounge.
